Comet C/2010 X1 Elenin in STEREO

Image Source, NASA STEREO.

On August 1, NASA rolled the STEREO Behind space craft and took a series of images out towards the constellation of Orion.

Even with the short imaging time of around an hour, comet Elenin was picked up as a fuzzy dot in the wide-field H2 instrument.

The spacecraft will undergo this series of rolls for about a week, when Elenin enters the nominal field of view of the higher resolution H1 instrument.

See the STEREO site for more details and animations, and Leonid Elenin has a nice GIF animation of his comet in STEREO.

Thank You so much for putting this information out !There is so much misinformation and intentional fear porn surrounding this comet Elenin!I feel like Nasa hasnt addressed any of the publics fear generated online .unfortunately many people dont trust the Government (myself included)but are not educated in astronomy to know what to look for .Somehow I think this end times stuff is a scam to get people to spend money and with the economy in the toilet i feel certain the government wouldnt mind the economic boost ....I myself has spent 10,0000 US dollars on a generator ,food ,water medical supplies...I know I must seem like an idiot but the truth of the matter is that it is better to be safe than sorry and it is said that earth has had 3 extinctions in the past..There have been alot more natural disasters in the past year so which is part of why people are afraid .I just want to be able to take care of my family and the community I live in ..is that so crazy ?okay I admit it is a little ...lol.We all love a good conspiracy theory but this comet Elenin thing has really put a damper on my outlook ...I can imagine it has done the same for many people .I am looking forward to the end of the year coming to pass so that I can look back and laugh!as I try to pay of the 10,000 dollar credit debt !LOL ...Thanks again for addressing peoples fears and questions ...you are a super cool and noble Cat !Best wishes to you !
